   I download rcs 5.10.0, untarred and try to run ./configure.
   However it is hang in 'checking whether getcwd handles long
   file names properly...' for more than 30+ min and still hang.

Thank-you for the bug report.  Yeah, that's excessive.

   Can you let me know how to configure and install it?
   The server I use to configure rcs is Red Hat 8.
   % cat /etc/motd
   Red Hat Enterprise Linux release 8.1 (Ootpa)


   + ./configure
   checking for error_at_line... yes
   checking whether fcntl handles F_DUPFD correctly... yes
   checking whether fcntl understands F_DUPFD_CLOEXEC... needs runtime check
   checking whether conversion from 'int' to 'long double' works... yes
   checking whether getcwd handles long file names properly...

This is from ‘gl_FUNC_GETCWD_PATH_MAX’ in m4/getcwd-path-max.m4.
IIUC, the test tries to create a filename up to, and then a bit
longer than, PATH_MAX in length.  It does this in a ‘while (1)’
loop, relying on ‘break’ to exit the loop.  Perhaps this is a C
compiler problem?
